A shortlist of possible sites for 17 new casinos, including Britain's first "super casino", is due to be announced.
More than 60 local authorities will hear whether they have reached the next stage of the bid for casino licences.
Blackpool, the Millennium Dome, in London, and Glasgow are among possible locations for the super casino, which would have unlimited jackpots.
Social and regeneration impacts will be considered by the Casino Advisory Panel set up by the government.
The government originally suggested there should be
eight super casinos, but after widespread opposition and claims they would lead to a big increase in gambling addiction, the plans were scaled down to just one.
